Joint Fluid Supplements

For patients whose joint pain does not improve with medication or physical therapy, “joint grease” injections may provide temporary relief. The joint is injected with a joint fluid supplement that acts as a lubricant for the damaged joint. Joint injection schedules and duration of relief vary according to the treatment chosen and the individual patient. However, these injections do not cure the diseased joint and joint replacement may be needed as the joint worsens with time.

Dr. Robert Follweiler is an amazing surgeon. He repaired my rotator cuff and reattached my bicep. At our initial visit he presented himself as a knowledgeable and caring Doctor and earned my trust. He did a wonderful job and I am glad I chose him as my surgeon.
